Guide To Rocking Those High Heels Like A Runway Model

 

heelIt’s no news that women loves to wear heels because it gives one a more feminine look and makes outfits more pronounced. Wrong choice of shoes can downplay an outfit but heels make a simple outfit gorgeous in a classy and s*xy way.

According to late Marilyn Monroe “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world”. Let’s assume she’s talking about heels. But if you can’t walk in the said heels, how then do you conquer the world?

Majority of women will want to rock heels on their outfits but because they can’t walk comfortably in them, they get discouraged. Put together here for you are few tips on how to walk comfortably in your heels without pains or tripping.

Three pairs of heels side by side against wall.Thick heels: The thicker the heels the easier it is to walk on, meaning the thinner your heels the harder it will be for you to balance on them. When still getting used to walking on high heels, choose thicker, sturdier heels which will give you more stability and confidence.

Comfortable-high-heelsSize: Be sure to buy the proper size of your shoes, especially high heels. If they are too small, your feet will feel cramped and if they are too big, your feet will slide around awkwardly. This will make walking a pain for you, seriously. If your heels are big use shoe pads for a better fit.

Don’t rush: It is better to take your time in heels. Trying to work fast in heels often ends up looking awkward. Wearing heels naturally makes your strides shorter, so take your time when you are walking in them. Don’t expect to be able to walk as fast as you normally do while in high heels. Walking slowly gives off an air of confidence too.

Place your heel on the ground first: High heels don’t just make you look taller, they also force you to walk differently. In flats, sneakers or flip flops, your full feet hit the ground more or less at the same time. In heels, however – and particularly in very high heels – this won’t only feel uncomfortable and awkward, it’ll look like that, too. Instead, you need to adapt the way you walk so that your heel comes into contact with the ground first but this might take a bit of getting used to.

Relax: A lot of women have a tendency to hold themselves very stiffly when they’re learning how to walk in high heels. This is partly because of the different way your body moves in heels (you might think your feet and legs are doing all the work, but your lower back and abdomen are working hard too, and are often the first places you’ll feel the strain if you’ve been overdoing it), of course, but it’s also natural to stiffen up if you’re feeling off-balance. Try to relax, not only will it look more natural, it’ll also be more comfortable, and make you less likely to hurt yourself.

Not all heels are equal: Never think that if you can walk easily in one pair of heels, you’ll be able to walk easily in them all, that is not the case. What can look like tiny differences in the design of a shoe can make a huge difference on how it feels to wear it and how easy it is to balance in it. You can have a very high shoes which will be easier to walk in than shoes that are a bit lower – it’s all boils down to the design, so just because the first pair of heels you try don’t work for you, it doesn’t mean you should give up it might just mean you need to shop around a bit and find a pair that’s more suited to your step.

 

When walking in heels, you’ll walk more gracefully if you look at your goal point (maybe it’s the podium at the end of the stage), and visualize a straight line going toward your end point, rather than looking down at your heels as you walk. How to Walk in High Heels without Pain

small stepsTake small steps: Wearing heels makes your stride shorter than normal, so you’ll have to take an increased number of small steps to go the same distance, don’t try to take your usual long strides either.

wedgesWedges: Wedges feel like flats but look like heels. If you are still struggling to walk in high heels, wedges are your friends. Because of the extra arch support, and the fact that the sole of the shoe is completely flat, they’ll give you height (sometimes a LOT of height) without forcing you to do much in the way of balancing. They’re the most comfortable type of high heels to walk in, and also probably the easiest, so they make an excellent starting point if you can’t walk in high heels, and want to learn.
